Patient Port Pillow Making Event

Patient Port Pillow Making Event

Wednesday (2/27) 11am – 1pm, Coulter Lobby, Coulter Hall

The Office of Student Leadership & Engagement and the Coulter Library Makerspace & Club are sponsoring a Patient Port Pillow Making Event. We want to offer a small gift to patients with ports. At the event we will have sewing machines and supplies ready for anyone who would like to help us sew little pillows to help cushion a patient’s port when they ride in a car. A seat belt can be quite the irritant against a port. We will donate the pillows to Cancer Care at Crouse Hospital. If you would like to assist us with this effort, below are the various ways you can help.

Donate – We need the following items to make the pillows. If you can donate any of these items please bring them to any library service counter by Friday, February 22.

  • Fabric
  • Velcro
  • Polyester fiber fill Volunteer

Before the event – Help us on TBA to prep supplies for the event.

At the event – We have openings for sewing machine trainers, pillow makers (no experience required), and general event volunteers.

Questions – Please contact Pauline Lynch Shostack ( or Shawn Edie (
